Better than a Romney neocon pick

It’s interesting that the same racial attacks on Hagel are the same kind of smears against Ron Paul just because they both espouse policies which have not been to the exact liking of AIPAC et al. The neocons are out in full force against Hagel which would seem to counter your allegation that Hagel is a MIC plant. If anything, his taking controversial stands against Iran sanctions and the war in Iraq provide a stellar contrast to the pounding of McCain’s and Lieberman's war drums. I would rather see someone like Hagel overseeing Pentagon cutbacks vs. an out and out neocon-supported stooge gratifying MIC lobbyists under a Romney ultra-right-wing presidency.
